In the 80s and 90s I made black and white prints from larger negatives. I took extension courses at Ryerson (Michael Torosian) and attended several workshops with Howard Bond in Ann Arbor. I abandoned my darkroom when I moved to Trent Hills around 2004. Although I miss the magic of working in the darkroom, I've made an enthusiastic conversion to working digitally.
